What Is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment with the aim of brightening the color of your teeth. In as little as one professional treatment, your teeth can appear whiter and cleaner. Our dentists can assess the current color of your teeth and any other factors to determine the best whitening treatment for you and customize it for your needs so that your smile can look its personal best.
Why Opt for Teeth Whitening?
Whiter teeth can do so much for your appearance and self-esteem! If you are not satisfied with the color of your teeth, teeth whitening might be a great treatment for you. Professional teeth whitening can lighten or even remove stains and discoloration completely.
Teeth discoloration may be caused by:
- The natural effects of aging
- Poor oral hygiene habits
- Certain drinks and foods, including tea, wine, coffee and soda
- Smoking and other tobacco use
- Certain medications
Benefits of Teeth Whitening
White teeth is a common desire for many patients across the country. Professional teeth whitening can lighten your smile several shades, lifting your self-esteem and helping you smile without feeling self-conscious. Find the courage to share your smile again with teeth whitening treatment!
You have probably seen teeth whitening treatments at your local grocery store or pharmacy. Over-the-counter whitening treatments may give you some good results, but only dental professionals are able to provide the powerful whitening agents needed to give your teeth a noticeably whiter shine that lasts.
Process of Receiving Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening involves the use of a powerful whitening gel. This gel is safe and gentle on your teeth and gums as it is applied to the surface of your tooth enamel. The gel targets and breaks up the molecular bonds of the stains and discoloration, resulting in a lighter appearance once the treatment is done. Professional teeth whitening can be completed in the office or at home with take-home kits.
In our office, we can use laser teeth whitening to greatly enhance the brightness of your smile quickly. We also offer custom whitening trays you can use at home to maintain or improve the appearance of your teeth.
Cost of Teeth Whitening
We will discuss your individual teeth whitening treatment cost with you depending on the extent of whitening you desire and any factors unique to your smile. Touch-up appointments will also be something you will need to consider since teeth whitening is usually not permanent and requires maintenance. We will go over all of these details with you.
